Coronaviruses are types of viruses which usually affect bird and mammalian respiratory tracts, including humans. Doctors connect them with the common cold, bronchitis, pneumonia, serious ARS, and COVID-19. Often, they can affect the heart.

Usually, these viruses are more responsible for common colds than severe illnesses. But even behind several more serious infections are coronaviruses.

Researchers have discovered, over the past 70 years, that coronaviruses can kill mice, rodents, dogs, cats, turkeys, horses, pigs, and cattle. Such animals can sometimes transmit coronaviruses to humans.

More recently, officials in China have reported a new coronavirus epidemic that has now reached other countries. This is named after the 2019 coronavirus outbreak or COVID-19.

In 1937 researchers became the first to isolate a coronavirus. In chickens, they discovered a coronavirus responsible for an acute bronchitis infection, which was able to devastate poultry stocks.

In the 1960s, scientists first discovered signs of human coronavirus (HCV) in people's noses with the common cold. A significant proportion of the common colds are responsible for two human coronaviruses: OC43 and 229E.

Symptoms of Corona

Symptoms differ with COVID-19, from person to person. It can cause few symptoms or no. It can, however, also cause serious illness which may be fatal. Popular signs include fever breathlessness cough It can take 2–14 days after infection for a person to develop symptoms.

MERS spreads through corona virus called MERS-CoV. Scientists first recognized this extreme respiratory condition in 2012, after it appeared in Saudi Arabia. It has since expanded to other nations.

The epidemic has entered the U.S., while in South Korea in 2015 the biggest outbreak outside the Arabian Peninsula occurred.

The MERS symptoms include fever, breathlessness and cough. The disease spreads by direct contact with individuals already sick. Nevertheless, both MERS reports have ties to persons recently returning to the Arabian Peninsula from their journeys.

Transmission

Coughing and sneezing will scatter droplets into the air, without covering the mouth.

The virus may be transmitted between individuals by touching or shaking hands with a person who has the virus.

Enter an area or surface that has the virus and then cover the nose, eyes or mouth.

Some animal corona viruses, such as feline coronavirus (FCoV), can propagate by face communication. If it still refers to human corona viruses, though, is uncertain.

Corona viruses can infect most individuals during their lifespan at any point in time.

Corona viruses can effectively mutate and makes them contagious.

Individuals will remain at home and relax while symptoms are present to avoid transmission. They will always stop being in direct touch with others.

Covering the mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing with a towel or handkerchief will also help avoid transmission. After usage it is important to dispose of any tissues and keep hygiene around the home.
